Progressive’s Flo Is “Maid For Us”

Poor Flo…she’s no maid, but everyone thinks she is in Progressive’s new ad, which features sitcom parody “Maid For Us.” Comments have stated it uses the set from “Everybody Loves Raymond”, which is possible, though I must admit that I’ve never seen that show. It’s all rather dumb and clearly has nothing to do with Progressive Insurance, but that theme song is a pretty spot-on sitcom parody.

Progressive Shows Jamie’s 40th, Including His Big House And Beautiful Wife

I’ll admit that Progressive’s long-running campaign with Flo (played by Stephanie Courtney) has become kind of a commercial blind spot for me. The campaign has just been around for so long and with so many ads that I’ve pretty much stopped paying attention to them. But this one caught my eye. From what I gather of the Progressive saga, Jamie (Jim Cashman) is kind of the butt monkey of the agents. So when everyone comes to his place for his 40th birthday, surprises abound. Jamie’s house that he claims “is not much” is actually quite modern and spacious. Also, Jamie has a bunch of kids, an incredibly sexy wife (played by Xian Mikol), and a beautiful, operatic singing voice. Who knew?
